First Baptist and EvUCC in Highland: Put on your Halloween costumes and join the members of Highland First Baptist Church and the Evangelical United Church of Christ on Wednesday, Oct. 28 as they combine forces to present a “spooktacular” evening of fun and games, snacks, stories, and trunk-or-treat. The event will be held at the First Baptist Church, 2709 Poplar St. in Highland.

There will be games, activities, and snacks for young and old alike from 6 to 7:10 p.m. in the church Fellowship Hall and classrooms. Then all the kids will be organized into groups to start trunk-or-treat in the parking lot at 7:15. Be sure to decorate your car trunks and bring lots of candy to hand out.

In order to assure that all the kids have not only a fun, but also a safe evening, organizers ask that those who intend to hand out candy to avoid wearing super-scary costumes. Also, all children must be accompanied by a parent or other adult to help supervise during the evening.

First Baptist Maryville: What would be better than going from house to house collecting candy? Getting loads of candy, all in one stop. Bring your kids, family, and neighbors to First Baptist Maryville, 7110 Illinois Route 162 in Maryville, for the fourth annual TrunkFest, to be held on Wednesday, Oct. 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.
